I wouldn't add more gravel that just reduces the amount of water she has. I would add some sort of cave for her to hide in.

well, there isn't much gravel in there, so if there were live plants, I think she would need more for the roots to grow well.

some plants, with thin roots will need smaller gravel, but most plants do not require anything "special"

I personally don't like to add too much rocks because it takes away from the swimming room, but if you're going to put live plants in there, you probably should do a little more. I've heard that java moss is a good beginner, but I don't know anything about live plants. Females especially love hide outs and being in plants so I would get a couple caves and more plants.
